The Santa Cruz Warriors - Golden State's D-League affiliate - held on to beat the Los Angeles D-Fenders 115-114 on Tuesday at Kaiser Permanente Arena as they hosted "Salvation Army Night."


The Warriors wore red custom jerseys with the Salvation Army insignia and auctioned them off post-game with all proceeds going to the charity organization.

The players also autographed their jerseys for the winners.

Tuesday's game centered on Santa Cruz's local Salvation Army chapter whose brass band performed the national anthem while bell ringers and carolers were also on hand as representatives.

Last month, Matt de Nesnera - public and community relations manager for the Warriors commented on the event:

The auction is to raise awareness about the Salvation Army and all the good that it does for the community. If we can help in anyway, by lending the Warriors' support and enthusiasm to what they're trying to do, we'd love to be a part of it."
